  1. @Rogue7 Huh, that's a strange one. I haven't experienced any virus warnings when downloading our podcasts. Just double-checked #62, and nothing's triggering on my end. Did that warning pop up in your browser? If so, try clearing your history and website data to see if that gets rid of the message.

    Gen Con 2018 Newsletter

    Edge of the Quarantine Zone is the name used for the current Wyrdscape terrain set, such as the large buildings.
  5. Wyrdos, We just released our Gen Con 2018 Newsletter, but if you don't receive our monthly newsletter (or hate clicking links and/or visiting our website), don't worry: I've got you covered. We're jumping off the top rope and bringing down an elbow drop of awesome onto this year's Tyrant Tournament at Gen Con. That's right; if you're one of the lucky qualifying entrants, you've got a chance to win yourself a Malifaux 2018 Champion belt. While it might not keep your pants up, this beauty will definitely look great draped on your shoulder or hanging triumphantly above your minis collection. But there's only one way to claim this prize: you gotta win. Make sure to bring your A-game so that you can rightfully claim that you're the best (of who showed up)! We've got a bunch of promotions that we're offering this year at Gen Con. You can find a list of our promos below: Get a FREE He-kome model (above) when you spend $100 or more (available in person and during online Gen Con sales). Get a raffle ticket for a chance to win a Mansion (below) when you purchase any 2 Edge of the Quarantine Zone Wyrdscape terrain boxes. The Mansion will be delivered to your provided address, at release (available in person and during online Gen Con sales - which will be automatically registered). Play a demo of The Other Side for a chance to win a gift box from one of the Allegiances, delivered to you at release. Get a raffle ticket for each $50 you spend for a chance to win one of the many goodies we'll have to offer at our raffle at the end of Gen Con! Every year, we like to offer something special at Gen Con, and this year's no different. While you might have already seen our preview of this year's NightMARE Gremlin box, we've still got a lot more to get excited about. There is one little thing we're doing differently this year. Like the color of the Burning Man's flames, our schedule is shifting a bit. The next Malifaux book won't be coming to Indianapolis. But don't worry - the sky's not falling. We've got some big plans for our friends across the Breach coming in the new year, and you'll be able to hear about those plans soon. You can find all of our Pre-releases in the Newsletter post on our website, but here's a glimpse of the Alt models we'll have during the big event: Above, we have Alt Rogue Necromancy, Alt Lenny, Alt Tannen and Graves, Alt Vanessa, and Alt Ototo! Are you ready for the best four days in gaming? We've got more announcements to share at Gen Con, and there's only one way to be the first to find out. If you're making your way to Indianapolis, why don't you make the trip to the Wyrd booth and say hello? We'll see you there!

  7. Wyrdos, Happy Monday! This week, we're showing off the Guild's fair and balanced approach to the legal system with the False Witnesses. Need to convict an Arcanist but don't have a lot (or any) evidence? Did a new Guild recruit start a (metaphorical or literal) fire but the blame needs to land elsewhere? Look no further than these brave souls, who are willing to bear the burden of the untruth in the name of justice.
  8. Wyrdos, As you might have already known, we recently had a Game Designer position open up in the Wyrd offices. After some careful deliberation and a few lucky card flips, we finally came to a decision as to who would help move some of our games forward. We are happy to announce that someone in our office has changed their Destiny. That’s right! If you’ve been a part of the community within the last year or so, then you already know him. Introducing, in his new (and final?) form, Kai: Game Designer. As a competitive Malifaux player for years and someone who has kept his ear close to the community, Kai will help us make sure that the future of Malifaux is bright and beautiful. Take a bow, Kai!
  9. Thanks for your feedback, everyone! Your thoughts, concerns, and votes will all go into consideration with Chronicles moving forward.
  10. Sadly, I can't speak on what we would and wouldn't do specifically on individual subjects because this was a hypothetical poll. It would make sense to have the one-shots downloadable so that they can be printed for general ease of use. Is there an even better way of providing that content? Maybe. I'm not the type of person to make an early decision on something without seeing all potential variables on the table, so who knows? Both ezine and blog formats have their issues, and I appreciate everyone proposing their concerns with the theoretical change. It sounds like the biggest concern about blogs, though, is that the content would change - and it might, but that's because a magazine format has limitations as to what sort of content it can provide. Variance in content wouldn't change, in fact, we might be able to vary the content even more because of the type of content that we could create and deliver is wider with a blog. A blog would have its own limitations, sure, but the potential for something greater is there. In its current format, Chronicles struggles with a few things. 1.) Interactivity. It's difficult to start a dialogue with the created content and the readers. Posting your thoughts about a story or a picture on a variation of custom terrain that you made after following a tutorial in a blog would be much easier to do. Right now, you have to download Chronicles and then make a post in the forum about it, which isn't a big deal, but it definitely is more steps. 2.) Tech limitations. I can understand wanting to download the .pdf so that it can be read offline, but another issue is that some people can't download and read the file at all. There are multiple barriers that prevent some users from accessing Chronicles. The most basic example is if someone likes to use their cell phone as a way to read the content, there's a significant chance that they won't be able to easily navigate through a document that was not designed for that screen format. 3.) Content flow. Right now, because of the way magazines work, it's difficult to create content on what's happening in the now. A prime example: our painting contests. We usually either have to talk about them before the fact or after, but very rarely are we able to talk about something during (unless it's Iron Painter, which is an exception because of its length). I'm not trying to sway opinions either way. This is just a conversation about how we can make Chronicles better, and a format change was a discussion we wanted to have with our community. Personally? I'm a blog reader. I think it's really easy to look through content and click on what I want to read and ignore the content that I'm not interested in. I like reading content on my phone and not on my PC. But the way I consume content is going to be different from the next person, which is exactly why we made this poll in the first place. The magazines that I still receive in the mail get largely ignored because the content is likely already dated in comparison to the content I received the day or week prior.
  11. Hi everyone! As you may or may not have noticed, I've been your friendly neighborhood game designer who has been putting Wyrd's bi-monthly ezine, Chronicles, together for the last year. In that time, we've been able to share some great and diverse content created by our community. We all download and read Chronicles for different reasons. Some open it up to discover new stories in the Malifaux-verse. Some read it to find out about our latest releases. Others look to be inspired creatively, with topics ranging from cosplay, painting tutorials, and suggestions on how to build a thematic gaming board. There might even be someone out there who appreciates the horrible time travel jokes that I try to sneak in here and there. That being said, this poll isn't about why we read Chronicles, but rather, how. Since Chronicles came to be, we've always understood it as a bi-monthly ezine. Every other month, a free magazine would be at your digital doorstep. But what if it was different? Would you prefer to receive the content we put into Chronicles every other month in one big chunk (like we do now), or would you prefer the content to be provided in a more streamlined way over a period of time in something more like a blog format? This would allow us to get stories, tutorials, tactics articles, previews, updates on our releases, and other Wyrd news to you on a more regular and consistent basis. Let us know what you think with your vote!
